Cultural Resources Survey of the Laurel Park Tract

Author(s): Carol Poplin

Year: 2003


Brockington and Associates, Inc., conducted a cultural resources survey of the Laurel Hall

tract in the Town of Mount Pleasant, Charleston County, South Carolina. The tract covers 28 acres

of land located northeast of the intersection of US Highway 17 and Lexington Drive (0.83 miles

northeast of the intersection of US Highway 17 and SC Route 41). Archaeologists identified one

isolated find (Isolate 1) on the project tract during the intensive survey. The isolated find is not

eligible for the National Register of Historic Places. There are no extant structures on the tract.

Development of the tract will not affect any historic properties. Further management of the project

tract with regards to cultural resources is not warranted.
